It is reported by Ukrinform with reference to the Slovak edition.

As reported, far-right Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, in his recent speech in the Romanian city of Beille Tusnad opposed the mixing of European and non-European races, which led to the indignation of opposition parties and a number of European politicians. In his speech, the head of the Hungarian government also made an anti-Semitic joke about gas chambers and sharply criticized Western military support for Ukraine, positioning himself as Russia’s main ally in the European Union.

Hungary is a NATO member, but the far-right Orban has a long-standing warm relationship with Putin and spent five hours in Moscow talking to the Russian leader in February, shortly before the Russian invasion.
